Dividing Property in a Danbury Divorce: Get Legal Help

In the state of Connecticut, the property is not automatically split equally (50-50). The court can decide to award some or all of a particular portion of the estate to one side or the other. In fact, the law does not even consider when the property or assets were acquired, which means if one spouse owned a home prior to the marriage, that property may be potentially awarded to the other spouse. The legal term is "all property equitable division" which means any assets, including property bought by either party, financial assets, or other investments are subject to be divided up as the court deems fit.

There are many factors that the court takes into consideration when making its decision as to what is an "equitable" division. These include the length of the marriage, the income of each party, the background of each spouse, including their education and work experience, and their personal and health history. The legal team at Jowdy & Jowdy are very experienced in divorce law and can explain and consult with you about these issues.
